Growing up, I was never taught the notion that education was limited.  I was taught that it was a source of freedom.  A freedom of curiosity, pleasure, fun,  resiliency, and unlimited imagination.  It will always be a place of love for me as it is the strongest form of self validation for me.    As I’ve gotten older and have become educated with the system.  This system is not the same….

questions not welcomed

curiosity is absurd

deep thinking isn’t required

narrow views

homogeneous thinking

is our goal

cognitive diversity is constantly ignored

the environment

is not inclusive

teaching styles are equated with serving others

as unequal

leadership is fueled by fear of being extraordinary

backbiting or being silent is the way to the top

There’s no room for shared values or beliefs

Only a select few can determine this culture

while others are robbed

of their uniqueness

with names spelled incorrectly

perceptions fueled by mis-education

is now the rule of the land.

I was always taught a name is worth more than gold

hearing such thoughts

  • that no one thinks like you
  • Well paper designing is real designing
  • just concentrate on what I give you

who you are doesn’t meet the noted standard of mediocrity

the very pulse of the environment

is cold

unwelcoming

uncongenial

disrespectful

a constant drink of mixed abuse

unethical practices

among group think

The status quo

is about ruler ship

portfolio learning

big data

lack of accountability

limited achievement

constraints

set limits

yet the tone is set about

being better than everyone else

Who do you serve amongst this polarized view of reality??

no growth

no souls

no connection

no relationships

transactional

learning

will always be the goal

there’s only

one way

one light

one current

one frequency

unmuted static tone

of

no love.
